Diagonal Cutters Number 86 and 87

The Number 86 and 87 are different lengths. These are general cutters and for cotter pins. Both tools show a lot of variation inside the same part numbers. The earliest Diagonal Cutters (86 and 87) have suction cups terminated with a line. The model is listed in the joint. Around 1932 the lines seems to have dropped. There are one, two and three rows of suction cups. The variations are something I don’t fully understand. Most are 2 rows. Newport PA was the sole source into 1931 /2 and Kenosha built pliers along with Newport after this into the 1950s..

the 85 is 4 1/2 inches and was introduced in 1935
